SHANGHAI - China urged the United States on Saturday to cancel a planned meeting between President Barack Obama and Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, saying such a meeting would be harmful to US-China relations.

"We firmly oppose any senior foreign government officials meeting with the Dalai Lama in any way," Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement on the ministry's website.

Hong said China called on the United States to "cancel the decision for Obama to meet the Dalai Lama as soon as possible, and not do anything that could interfere with China's internal affairs or harm China-US relations."
